Reighlah Collins Portrait

Reighlah Collins

Attorney

Reighlah Collins joined DRNC in August 2018 as an attorney on the education team. Collins grew up in Zebulon, N.C. She received her bachelor’s degree in psychology from the University of North Carolina-Asheville where she interned for the Asheville TEACCH autism program. Prior to earning her law degree from UNC School of Law, Collins worked as a direct supports coordinator in a group home for adults with intellectual and/or developmental disabilities. Collins has family members working the disability field and her brother has fetal alcohol syndrome. These experiences led her to pursue a career in disability law. Outside of work, Reighlah likes to read, bake cookies, make people look at pictures of her two cats, and spend time with her family.
